July 2017 - Members of the Mill Street Heritage Committee meeting with city staff and Ward 15 Councilor Judi Partridge, on further traffic calming options for Mill Street North.
Mill Street & Church Street Stop Sign
In an attempt to calm the traffic flow, both north & south, on Mill St., the committee began working with the City through the ward Councilor Judi Partridge, in an attempt to interrupt and slow down traffic at one or more points along the street.
The final outcome (2015) of the initiative was the installation of the four-way stop at Church Street. Although traffic often only comes to a rolling stop, the stop sign has resulted in slowing traffic, to some extent.
Heritage District Street Signs:
The committee investigated the possibility of having special street signs installed in the heritage district. After approaching the City along with Ward 15 Councillor Judi Partridge, the city agreed to create and install street signs that were unique to the heritage district.
The new gold on black heritage signs were installed in the summer of 2014.
The committee has been successful in having the City reduce the speed along Mill Street. The new 40km per hour signs were installed, along Mill Street, in June of 2016.
